Atari 2600: Beany Bopper




This is an example of a Xante cartridge. Similar to Romox, the customer would select a game from a catalog, and a cartridge would be created on the spot. Software kiosks were located in Tulsa, Oklahoma conenience and grocery stores. The game came with a generic box, instruction sheet, and cartridge label. The cartridge is actually reprogrammable, but it wasn't marketed that way. Xante casings are all blue with an embossed logo.

In this game, you are Bopper.

The object is to stun then capture Beannies. You can also capture Bouncing Orange Eyeballs and various Falling Objects.

If an unstunned Beanny touches you, you lose a life. You don't need to stun the other items to capture them but doing so makes them slow down.

You get a bonus Bopper by shooting four Beannies in a row without losing a Bopper.

There are two game options, one where the Beannies bounce off the walls on screen, the other where they pass through.
